New 'Artificial Synapses' Could Let Supercomputers Mimic the Human Brain
Brain-like machines with human-like abilities to solve problems could become a reality, researchers say.
Only The Lonely - A Surprise Role For Dopamine In Social Interplay
Scientists have shown that the chemical signal dopamine plays an unexpected role in social interactions. In mice, nerve cells in the brain that release dopamine become particularly active in animals k...
How Synapses Work
Salk scientists computationally reconstructed brain tissue in the hippocampus to study the sizes of connections (synapses). The larger the synapse, the more likely the neuron will send a signal to a n...
Boston University's 3D map reveals tiny connections between cells
Harvard University researchers hope the map could be used to identify unusual connections between brain cells that could shed light on disorders such as bipolar and depression.
Scientists Discover Atomic-Resolution Details Of Brain Signaling
Scientists have revealed never-before-seen details of how our brain sends rapid-fire messages between its cells. They mapped the 3-D atomic structure of a two-part protein complex that controls the re...
Swedish Scientists Build Artificial Neurons Able To Communicate With Organic Neurons
Scientists at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have built a fully functional neuron by using organic bioelectronics. This artificial neuron contain no "living" parts, but is capable of mimicking the fu...
Brain Receptor Found To Significantly Affect Cocaine Addiction
The study found that by manipulating the activity of Activin receptors — receptors found in the brain — the researchers were able to increase or decrease cocaine-taking and relapse behavior in animal ...
Nootropics? Enhancing Brain Power?
Nootropics are smart drugs, memory enhances and cognitive enhancers. Is intelligence enhanced or your neuro system made better by using nootropics? There are supplements, nutraceuticals, functional fo...
ABC Science: Making fuel out of thin air
In a discovery that experts say could revolutionise fuel cell technology, scientists have found that graphene, the world's thinnest, strongest and most impermeable material, can allow protons to pass ...

Axon guidance - Growth cone guidance by an adhesive substrate
In this video a DRG growth cone crosses from a fibronectin to a laminin substrate. Filopodial contact with laminin leads the way.
Mechanosensation
Mechanosensation is a response mechanism to mechanical stimuli. The physiological foundation for the senses of touch, hearing and balance, and pain is the conversion of mechanical stimuli into neurona...
Synapse
In the nervous system, a synapse is a structure that permits a neuron (or nerve cell) to pass an electrical or chemical signal to another cell (neural or otherwise). Santiago Ramón y Cajal proposed th...

Neurotransmitter
Neurotransmitters are endogenous chemicals that transmit signals across a synapse from one neuron (nerve cell) to another 'target' neuron. Neurotransmitters are released from synaptic vesicles in syna...
Axon
An axon (from Greek ἄξων áxōn, axis), also known as a nerve fibre, is a long, slender projection of a nerve cell, or neuron, that typically conducts electrical impulses away from the neuron's cell bod...
